Nominate for Unleashed Awards
Tuesday, 18th August 2015 at 11:00 am

Young people who've done awesome things in the past 12 months are being urged to get their nominations in for the Foundation for Young Australian’s 2015 Unleashed Awards.

The Unleashed Awards are part of Australia’s social change festival for young people. FYA says they celebrate the best and brightest young people creating change in their community, across the country and beyond.

FYA CEO Jan Owen AM said that there are six awards on offer this year and $1,000 cash prizes to be won for each category.

“At FYA we believe that young people are ambitious, creative, capable of rethinking the world and solving tomorrow’s problems today,” Owen said.

“If we want young people to live up to their potential and create the best future possible, we need to back them now.

“The Unleashed Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the best and brightest young people in Australia, give them the recognition they deserve and the opportunity to continue the fantastic work their doing leading change across the country.”

This year’s award categories are:

  • Trailblazer Open to changemakers (individuals or groups) who are 29+, in recognition of their achievements.

  • La Trobe Local legend Open to young people aged 13 – 26 working within their local community to create positive change.

  • Jumpstart For those young people aged 13 – 26 who have the potential to scale their idea through digital, but just need a little jumpstart.

  • Gamechanger Open to groups or individuals who are engaged in social or socially-minded business enterprise. This award focuses on innovation and enterprise skills.

  • SBS Asia Connect An award for a young person aged 13 – 26 who is working to turbocharge our connection with the Asian region through volunteer, social enterprise or other Not for Profit work or projects.

Nominations will be open until August 28 and winners will be announced in an awards ceremony at the Deakin Edge on September 25. The third annual Unleashed Festival is taking over Melbourne’s Federation Square from Monday 21 September to Saturday 26 September 2015.
